ROME - special prize
The Complex Morandi, coming from the Urbanism of the Seventies, is the design of a Community Utopia made of residences and services. Unfortunately it turned soon into a “ghetto” confined to the edge of the town, in a condition of spatial and temporal crystallization. The project S.O.S.PESO wants to intervene respecting the architectural image of the Complex: the multiple intervents are part of a more complex strategy, that is able to take action not only on functional and sustainable aspects, but especially giving back urban places to the community. It is described as a new methodology of retrofitting of single or multiple existing buildings; it is capable to show the designing process as an added value.
